have you considered how big it’ll get and how much itll eat and all that? what state do you live in? theyre legal in some states i dont know what ones but in rhode island you dont need a permit to get one just be 18, and florida and southern states i think you need a license.

What state do you live in? And something probably more important than being able to jump through the legal hoops is are you going to be able to afford an Alligator? If you are a decent human being and take good care of it you might be able to keep it in an aquarium for the first year or so, after that thy become very expensive pets. I’ve had mine for over 4 years now and his last enclosure cost thousands of dollars to build (and that was being thrifty) And he’s only a baby still! I am all for people keeping crocodilians if they have the resources but if you dont or are unsure please for the animals sake dont buy one
